Mallards along the shoreline in front of the house
That sound at 5:30 am really should annoy me, but the past few days, it's been music to my ears! It means the ice is melting on the lake, that spring will truly arrive one of these days! The sounds of spring are almost as delightful as the smells and sights. There's a morning songbird that always reminds me of spring, but not being a birder, I have no idea what it is or how to even describe it's two-toned, high-low, sing-song. But I know that whenever I hear it, it brings a smile to my face,and I just want to whistle right back!
